Amy's Untried Challenge: Dots

Hello all!  Wanted to share with you the first design from a new challenge I'm doing on Instagram called "Amy's Untried Challenge."


It is hosted by "AmyLovesNewWave" and "AmyyLyn" and the idea is that you use at least one polish you own that you've never tried before (a.k.a. an "untried") for each of these themes.  It's a GREAT way to finally use all those beautiful polishes I've purchased and haven't had time to try yet!!

So for Day 1's challenge of Dots, I used this photo I took at the Seattle Sculpture Park as a reference:


And here is my design:


 

I used all of the new Spring colors just released by Model City Polish and the Black Friday Trio by Ellagee.  The white dots are acrylic paint :)  I'm pretty pleased with how it turned out!  What do you all think?
